Laurent Frayssinous credited his forwards for Catalan Dragons' latest escape act as Bradford were beaten in France.

The Dragons trailed 10-0 after half an hour but came from behind to take the points for the third home game in succession.

And after watching his side coat home 30-10 in the end Frayssinous said: "I am happy that we had the character to come back from 10-0 down again but there were different circumstances this time.

"Against Wakefield and Widnes we were not in the games mentally but Bradford started really well and we had to play well to stay with them.

"I want to give credit to my forwards, who I thought were excellent. I felt that, once we got on a roll in the second half, we got on top of Bradford."

"I want to give credit to my forwards, who I thought were excellent. I felt that, once we got on a roll in the second half, we got on top of Bradford.

"I have to give Louie Anderson a big rap. He ran some excellent lines and defended really well on the edge."

Test

Bulls coach Francis Cummins said: "In the second half they had a lot of double sets and they scored off the back of them. We didn't see the ball.

"We showed in the first half that, if you have good ball, you can test the Catalans but those double sets really took it out of us in the second half because we only had three props.

"We started to chase the game and force the ball and that makes it a really tough game to play."
